Julia Roberts is turning heads once again with a new hair color after her “spontaneous” fringe stole the spotlight last year. While she sported each style at separate events, she combined both in one memorable look from the late 1990s.

Julia Roberts, known for her ever-changing hairstyles over the years, has embraced a bold new look. Known for her signature red hair, she showcased her new style in two photos on AmoMama’s Facebook page, featuring her hair in different shades but maintaining its wavy texture.

AmoMama readers were quick to share their thoughts on Julia’s dramatic change. Opinions varied widely, with some commenters feeling the look did not suit her.

One reader, who strongly associates Julia’s classic look with her identity, bluntly commented, “not the same person. [sic]” Another suggested that the new shade doesn’t align with their vision of Julia’s beauty, “That is not a pretty woman. Bleached blonde is not for her.”

An observant reader pointed out the mismatch between her hair color and skin tone, “Doesn’t go with her skin color.” “Red is so much prettier,” another chimed in, reaffirming the preference for Julia’s previous look.

However, not all feedback was critical. “Great fresh look for her!” expressed one reader enthusiastically, embracing the change as a refreshing update. “It suits her makes her face softer [sic],” another fan noted, highlighting the transformative power of the new color.

Finally, one fan shared a practical perspective about Julia’s hair color change, “She probably went with blond because she is grey. Blond covers grey better. [sic]” This practical view aligns with insights shared by High Brow Hippie, the salon responsible for Julia’s new hairstyle.

The group, along with celebrity hairstylist and Julia’s longtime collaborator Serge Normant highlighted their careful approach on Instagram: “When making drastic color changes, in this case from red to blonde, my approach is always the same- slow and methodical, while always keeping the health and integrity of the hair first and foremost. [sic]”

The salon emphasized patience and multiple sessions to achieve natural and realistic results while maintaining the hair’s health. Going blonde wasn’t Julia’s only recent hair transformation. She sported another hairstyle last year, too.

In March 2023, she made an impromptu change by sporting bangs at an event in Geneva, Switzerland, which she attended as Chopard’s brand ambassador.

Normant, who also styled Julia’s bangs, shared that the transformation was unplanned. “With Julia, we had been talking about bangs that she wore in the past. She always liked them so it was very spontaneous!” he explained.

Julia has flaunted many enviable hairstyles on the red carpet, including a memorable look at the 1997 “Red Corner” film premiere in New York City, where she combined two striking styles. She impressed with wispy bangs and blonde hair, showcasing her versatility and flair.

But it’s not just her hair that turns heads. Recently, Julia gave fans a rare peek into her family life, celebrating her and her husband Daniel Moder’s youngest son’s birthday in April with a heartfelt Instagram post.

Henry Moder turned 17 on June 18. His doting mom celebrated the joyous occasion with an adorable mother-son post, one of many that have prompted a flurry of positive reactions online.

In the “Pretty Woman” star’s photo, her eyes are filled with nothing but love and happiness as she gazes down at Henry, who was only a baby when the picture was taken. Nestled in the protective arms of his mom, the curious, precious baby’s attention seems to be captivated by something outside the frame.

Expressing both her pride and amazement, Julia penned a short and sweet caption alongside the picture. “Incredible that this baby is now a towering 17 year old wonder! Happy Birthday beautiful Henry 💙,” she wrote.

Although both Julia and Henry’s dad, Daniel, tend to prioritize the privacy of their children, the couple has been known to show exclusive photos and videos of them from time to time. The duo, especially Daniel, have shared endearing family moments with onlookers, often posting media of Henry, Hazel, and Phinnaeus Moder enjoying activities like biking and skating.

One such Instagram post shared by Daniel shows Henry showing off his skating skills at a skate park. The slow-motion video depicts the teenager, who is dressed in dark jeans and an olive-colored t-shirt, maneuvering his skateboard on an uphill ramp.

Henry then manages to swivel the board around once he gets to the top of the ramp and his handsome face comes into the camera frame. The video then zooms further in, giving followers a close-up view of his visage and striking eyes.

The comment section of this particular post was abuzz with praise and compliments for the now-17-year-old from followers who also asserted their opinions about which parent Henry resembles the most. “He looks just like you. Handsome boy,” said a fan.

Another echoed, “Looks just like his Dad!😍 beautiful children.” Agreeing with the father-son lookalike comments, but bringing Henry’s mom into the mix as well, someone else added, “Has mom’s hair. No denying that child. Lol.”

On the other hand, an Instagrammer expressed, “Obviously NO Roberts genes at all in this family! 😊” When Henry’s lookalike father shared an older picture of his son on social media, followers took to the comment section yet again.

In the picture from 2018, Henry poses in casual-cool attire in a lighthouse. Looking down at the camera, the skater boy’s lengthy hair fell loosely to frame his face.

Contextualizing the vibey snap, Daniel captioned, “Look closely to see the star spangled shorts. One cool kid…happy 4th of July from a lighthouse in the Cape.” “Handsome Henry,” asserted an admirer underneath the post, while another commented, “Julias eyes 😊🙋🏼‍♀️.”

Whether or not Julia shares any resemblance with Henry does not bear any weight on the love she has for him and his siblings. She has boasted about them on many occasions and prioritizes her role as their mother above everything else.

In a past interview where she sat down to discuss her then-new movie “Ticket to Paradise,” the interviewer asked Julia Roberts about her description of herself as a homemaker. In response, the mom of three disclosed, “When I’m not working, that is my full-time job. And it isn’t, you know, rainbows and kittens every day, but it does bring me a lot of joy.”
